COUNTING is for the Birds

One of our favorite things to do during the year is to watch the birds come to our feeder.  Meanwhile, the children have picked up on a few varieties of species, their favorite is the cardinal.

COUNTING is for the Birds by Frank Mazzola, Jr. (c. 1997) covers several developmental skills all at once.  While teaching your child to count to twenty, Mazzola introduces rhyme, bird facts, number recognition, bird species identification, all while weaving together a hidden plotline.  So take a look at Scholastic's COUNTING is for the Birds the next time you visit your local library.
